Preventing Mother-to-Child Transmission of HIV (Developed World)
If a woman who is HIV positive becomes pregnant, there's a risk that her baby will contract HIV during pregnancy, childbirth, or breast feeding. Becky Kuhn, M.D. explains how the risk can be reduced through the use of antiretroviral medications for the mother and the infant and the use of formula instead of breast feeding. These guidelines are for women in developed countries with reliable access to ARVs, formula, and clean water. Visit http://www.AIDSvideos.org/ to learn more about HIV.
